Has anyone had experience with a newborn's ear canal from the outside not being open?

My great-niece was born with no opening in the outside ear canal - does anyone have any information about this. Some skin tags and her face is a little mis-shapen (one side a little shorter than the other). Does anyone have any personal knowledge of a newborn with this problem?
